Vintage Carriages Trust Coaches

Train travel through the ages

The Vintage Carriages Trust (VCT) own a fleet of vintage coaches some being over 100 years old. VCT operate the Museum of Rail Travel at Rail Story, Ingrow West and their fleet is primarily to demonstrate travel by rail through the ages at their museum. Some of the coaches are capable of running in passenger service but, due to their role in the museum and their antiquity, are not used on regular service trains but do see occasional use on special trains.

Static coaches and carriages as part of the vintage train

Operational coaches, between 50 and over 100 years old, are not used on regular service trains but do see occasional use on Vintage Train Sundays and other special occasions. When not in use they are normally exhibited at the Museum of Rail Travel or loaned to other centres.
